expires_now broken

Reported by Mike Boone | March 11th, 2010 @ 08:42 PM | in 2.3.9

For Rails 2.3.x:

expires_now is supposed to set the Cache-Control header to "no-cache", but the header is overwritten to "private, max-age=0, must-revalidate". I suspect this is happening in actionpack/lib/action_controller/response.rb#set_conditional_cache_control! However, I don't understand the etag stuff well enough to mess with the code in handle_conditional_get! which is calling set_conditional_cache_control!.

Attached is a patch to the tests for expires_now, which fails.
